Hawaiian Birthday Cake

This yummy cherry chip with cherry buttercream and marshmallow fondant cake was for a birthday gal who is going to celebrate again in Hawaii in a few weeks! We got our first big snowfall the day it was completed, so hopefully it warmed the party a bit!
The trees were gumpaste molded around dowels.

2nd Birthday Requires TWO cakes, right?

Well, when your mom is cake crazy and can't decide between a candy cake and Mary Poppins cake...this is what you get!
You also get cake pops and other yumminess...


I learned about Pokemon a little bit this week. I think he is the little yellow guy. His name is sort of tricky to write, and he likes lightening bolts. Best of all though, he was going to sit on this cake and go to Wyatt's 7th Birthday party!

White cake with vanilla pudding filling. Marshmallow fondant with buttercream icing underneath, and the POKEMON sign was made with a gumpaste/fondant mix to help it keep it's shape.
Happy Birthday Wyatt! Hope you had a good one!

Cub Scout Cake

The Cub Scouts that meet in town here were raising money for their camps by having a cake auction and our neighbor boy up the road is a WEBELOS so what better to make than his patch!
There were some really fun cakes and fun ideas at the auction. My favorites were the pizza cake and the kitty litter box cake (grodie, but kinda funny)!
The parents and families of these boys were amazing and didn't mind spending the money for a good cake and an even better cause. My husband is an Eagle Scout, so he filled me in on all the boy stuff and even suggested this cake design. So thanks, Babe.Confetti cake with buttercream frosting and marshmallow fondant. Yum, yum!

Train Cake

I need to get a better backdrop and not be in a hurry to take cake photos! Usually I am finishing last minute touches before heading out the door with them. This one eventually got a colorful striped ribbon laced in the plate, but no photo of it. It also had a cute Thomas the Tank Engine figure put on the track, but again no photo! It was for a 3rd birthday party, triple chocolate fudge cake with buttercream filling and marshmallow fondant decor! The kids loved it (and so did the adults!)
